In 1983 appeared Volume 1 of a projected eleven volume compilation of the journals of the Lewis and Clark expedition. The first volume turned out to be an atlas, which came as something of a surprise to many scholars; yet the quality of the work-the editing, the annotations, and the incredible state-of-the-art graphics-commanded praise from the academic community. The thought that lay behind the atlas as Volume 1 was that it would furnish a working tool for those studying all the remaining ten volumes. The great question remaining was, what of the quality of the textual volumes to come?
